In reality that kick (and the fight containing that kick) earned Pettis hundreds of thousands and changed his life.

UFC #1 CONTENDER!

I don't see Pettis becoming the UFC champ immediately, but maybe in the future.

WEC, you're were the best.

Was that kick legal? I guess I don't see how it is. You can't grab the cage to defend, so how can you use it for strikes?

Not sure if you're serious or not, but you can push off the fence all day long.

Exactly. It's not like he gripped the cage with his toes or anything. That would be pretty difficult. You'd need like monkey toes or something.

You can touch the cage. You can bounce of the cage. You can put your hands on the cage. The only thing you can't do is grab the cage. If Pettis stuck his foot in the cage and grabbed it with his toes, it would have been illegal. But you can bounce off the cage with any part of your body you want to.

That kick ain't legal. That kick is pure RAPE in a cage
